I believe healing is possible through an invitation to connect with your body, emotions, and thoughts. To build understanding about how your experiences, relationships, and culture have impacted your life. I seek to be a companion in the process of sharing your personal story as you sift through the well of your entire lived experience to discover your authentic voice. Together, we will use body based interventions, emotionally focused work, and brain-based approaches like EMDR to reclaim the chapters of your life where difficult experiences stole your sense of who you are, and nurture growth, healing, and overcome loneliness.

I get deep satisfaction from working with couples, using best practices from training in Emotionally Focused Therapy to recreate emotional connection. I also am trained in using EMDR to help individuals experience relief from the burden of traumatic experiences. Another specialty is Discernment Counseling, a discipline in which I am fully certified and which offers couples an opportunity to gain clarity about whether they remain married, continue as they are for the time being, or commit to the challenging work of couples therapy.

Certified Sexual Addiction Specialist, and Certified Clinical Partner Specialist.The model practiced is multidimensional, treating the addict, partner, coupleship. All three dimensions of the attachment injury are traumatized. The aftermath of discovery/disclosure induces symptoms that impact psysiological responses to the mind, body.The treatment protocol for sexual addiction induced trauma I practice is EMDR, as well as 2 day Intensives. Practicing SEP,we are able to get to wounds of how the body holds the trauma/ attachment injury, using an integrative trauma model. Emotionally Focused Therapy allows helping couples to get to their deepest needs/hurt/rejection/ and betrayal.

Relationships can be challenging, especially now. At the Center for Family & Relational Health, our marriage and family therapists specialize in healing hurting relationships. Rather than treating individual clients, we take a different therapy approach. We treat any combination of two or more people who want to move from feeling stuck to experiencing meaningful connection in their relationships. Our therapists see couples, families, sibling groups, roommates, coworkers, and friends.

How many times have you heard, “why can’t you just stop?” Do you find yourself wishing those around you would attempt to understand your experience and hear you? Addiction, anxiety, and depression are already so isolating and we often have a difficult time understanding our own behavior without trying to explain it to family and friends. We feel stuck, alone, frustrated, and misunderstood. Imagine what it would be like to identify the root cause of your addiction and start treating the source while learning coping skills for managing addictive behavior, anxiety, and depression.

Unexpected problems and challenging seasons can cause you to forget the things that truly matter. As your worries and frustrations grow - life can lose both meaning and joy. In these moments, it’s very easy to isolate, withdraw, and avoid. “Keeping your head down” is a great temporary strategy to get through a tough moment. Or you might be very skilled at “pretending” that you’re OK on the outside, while you hide the truth on the inside. This can be really helpful when your family and friends depend on you to provide for them. How can you stop and take care of yourself when the stakes are so high? You deserve help and support.

Most people seek counseling when they have exhausted all efforts at making their pain go away, or in changing the dynamics of an important relationship, or in making a successful life change or transition. Do you find yourself feeling, thinking, and behaving in ways that you wish you could change? You know what you are supposed to do, but for the life of you you can't seem to do it! Are you discouraged and frustrated? Sad and afraid? Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, and loneliness? To find healing, "what was hurt within a relationship, must be healed within a relationship." We were created for relationship.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
